  Description     : mocked DBI interface for testing purposes

Test::MockDBI has a major advantage over DBI::trace()
or DBD::Mock -- Test::MockDBI lets you change how the
mocked DBI functions behave, along with modifying
what data is returned by the mocked DBI functions.
These changes and modifications can be made specific
to particular SQL statement patterns.

This ability to modify DBI function behavior and
DBI-returned data makes it easier to test code that has
different branches for different DBI behaviors -- you
can test that a failure within DBI or returned DB data
that is different than normal is processed correctly by
your module or program.  If you are taking over a large
code base, Test::MockDBI will help in understanding the
code by allowing you to safely check how the code behaves
under different database conditions without modifying any
databases (production or otherwise).
